Branches, onward

Dear Articulate-- I've forwarded your email to our new research development coordinator, Pedestrian Organ. He should be in touch shortly.

Best,

Verbena

Hello Dr. Dad:

Verbena Anxious forwarded your request to me and I'd like to set up a meeting with you to discuss your [Longitudinal Project]. I am the Research Development Coordinator here at [Campus Humanities Center], which is the less direct way of saying that I am here to help people turn good ideas into funded proposals. Maybe we can talk about your project and kick around some ideas for future funding. I read over quite a bit of your website and found it quite interesting. [Particular Research Areas] are topics I have pondered quite a bit. I'd love the opportunity to hear more about your research and brainstorm some possible funding agencies. Maybe you have some time tomorrow afternoon? Maybe next week on Wednesday?

-Pedestrian Organ

Meeting scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. Onward and upward!

I've talked about my 5 year plan to be Director of a Center for Research in [Area 1] & [Area 2]. Why wait five years? I've got time on my hands right now.
